Wales: Five things we learned in December

first_img On the money, while everyone else is arguing over it…: Dan Biggar kicks for the Ospreys in DecemberBy Paul WilliamsWRU and Regional relations spiralThe lowest point on earth is Challenger Deep, located at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. That was, until New Year’s Eve 2013. The new lowest point on earth is currently relations between the Welsh Rugby Union and Regional Rugby Wales.The New Year’s Eve deadline for signing an extension to the Participation Agreement came and went. The regions feel unable to sign the agreement in its’ current state, citing the lack of Pro 12 sponsors and uncertainty over future European competitions and remuneration as their key issues. It’s easy to sympathise with the regions in this instance. Would any of us sign a mortgage without seeing the house, knowing how many bedrooms it has, how much it costs or how much it may be worth in 2019? The WRU’s response was very clear and alluded to the possibility that other clubs or regions could be created or financed and would then fill the vacancies left by the regions in the Pro 12 and any future European competitions. RRW have now issued their own deadline by which they would like the WRU to have responded to their concerns. January 31, 2014 will now see matters come to a head and the intervening four weeks could be as important a period in Welsh rugby as has ever been.So much for New Year’s Resolutions. New Years’ Revolution may be closer to the mark.The Scarlets did draw crowdsBoxing Day sell outWelsh rugby saved its best present for Boxing Day. The derbies between the Scarlets and Ospreys and Dragons v Blues were a roaring success in terms of attendance. Both Parc Y Scarlets and Rodney Parade witnessed full houses and felt the associated commercial and atmospheric gains. To viewers of the Aviva Premiership, marvelling at a full house may seem over the top, particularly when Harlequins sold out Twickenham on the December 28. However, Welsh rugby isn’t usually afforded that luxury. The regions, for a number of reasons, have more seats to sell than DFS and to see Welsh grounds teeming with supporters was heart-warming. A rare glimpse of what a healthy regional product can look like. Fingers crossed that we don’t have to wait until next Christmas to witness it again.Dragons the third region? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS However, the continuing discord and apparent impasse now surely warrants ministerial intervention, no matter how small. Rugby is one of Wales’ national exports. Its impact on the economy, particularly via tourism, is profound. From 1999 to 2011 the Millennium Stadium has attracted £1.2 Billion into the Welsh economy. And whilst admittedly that can’t solely be attributed to rugby, it would be naive to think that Welsh Rugby hasn’t played an enormous part.Rugby is one of Wales’ key industries and it needs to be treated with the same level of attention as would be afforded to any other failing Welsh industry. I’m not suggesting for one moment that this is as serious the industrial issues that Wales faced in the 80’s. It clearly isn’t. However, a level of ministerial involvement from the Assembly would surely sharpen a few minds. The Dragons have long been labelled the ‘fourth’ region. Their performances over recent seasons, whilst rarely short of effort, have resulted in them dwelling in the basement of the Pro 12.Well, no longer. The Dragons are currently sixth in the table and are lording it over both the Scarlets and the Cardiff Blues. The Dragons’ win over the Cardiff Blues on Boxing Day further reinforced the notion that they are no longer merely brave battlers – but determined winners. They are now not only the second region in Wales, but are currently playing some of the best rugby in Wales too. Lyn and Kinglsey Jones have developed a solid spine of a team and enveloped it with a neat offloading game. The desire to avoid contact whenever possible has seen the Dragons score some accomplished tries and accentuated the skillsets of some of their key players. Toby Faletau, Jason Tovey, Richie Rees and Hallam Amos are all benefiting from the coaching staff’s desire to pass around contact. Whether or not the Dragons remain the ‘second’ Welsh region come the end of the season remains to be seen. But I’ll wager there will be at least one other Welsh region beneath them come May.Dan Biggar’s kicking classDan Biggar has had a tremendous December from the kicking tee. It’s an aspect of his game that occasionally gets overlooked, partly because Leigh Halfpenny’s right boot casts an enormous shadow from which other goal kickers struggle to escape. Up until the Boxing Day fixture against the Scarlets Biggar had successfully kicked 35 in a row. He hadn’t missed since September 28. It’s worth mentioning the kick that he did miss against the Scarlets was from behind the halfway line too – not a simple dab from right in front of the posts. Biggar’s form with the boot has been an enormous benefit to the Ospreys in December and could also be a big boost for Wales in February. Having two 85%+ goal kickers on the field presents an enormous advantage at test level.Politicians needed?: First Minister Carwyn JonesDoes Welsh Rugby need ministerial intervention?Welsh rugby’s current issues are well known. The solution is not. Even the most learned administrators, pundits and writers can’t agree on a solution and the disparate array of opinions highlights just how complicated the issues are. President of the Catalan regional government and leader of the Catalan party CIU (Convergence and Unity party) Artur Mas (R) meets with Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones (L) at the Palau de la Generalitat in Barcelona, on March 1, 2013. Carwyn Jones paid a visit to Barcelona on St David’s Day to promote Wales. AFP PHOTO/LLUIS GENE (Photo credit should read LLUIS GENE/AFP/Getty Images) last_img read more

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear The VOICE of HealthThe REAL Stories of the ERFrom Florida Hospital TAGSEmergency RoomFlorida HospitalThe VOICE of Health Previous articleOrange County connects with “The Millennial Lifestyle”Next articleIn case you missed it: The Apopka news week in review Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Please enter your name here Sitting on the edge of your couch, you’re likely drawn in by the wonder of what goes on in the TV-depicted emergency room. The sirens. The bright lights. The rush of medical teams to someone’s side. Medical dramas — both of fiction and of real-life accounts — tell emotionally charged stories about moments that test the human body — in mind, body, and spirit — bringing compassion and hope when every minute counts.And while no one ever wants to be in these emergent situations, our hearts know that medical emergencies appear when we least expect them and that these TV stories might, in some way, help us prepare if they ever do.But medical dramas are not the best ways to “prepare.” In fact, real-life emergency rooms are very different than those on TV, according to Nikki McGlone, RN, clinical nurse leader for the Florida Hospital emergency department service line. After over 19 years of experience as an emergency room nurse, McGlone insightfully shares that people can be fearful or overwhelmed, especially when they don’t know what to expect.And while you can never be fully prepared, McGlone shares her insight into what you might expect during an emergency room visit, with some tips to help reduce stress and improve your experience.What to Expect in the ERArrivalWhen you walk through the doors of an emergency department, the first thing you might see is people waiting for many reasons. Try to take a deep breath — you never know what to expect. “You could be the only one there, or at peak times there could be a crowd of people waiting to be seen for various reasons,” explains McGlone.“Trust that the emergency department will do everything possible to see you as quickly as possible,” says McGlone.She adds that Florida Hospital’s Emergency Departments are very diligent to create the most calming and welcoming environment possible while minimizing wait times. Due to the unpredictable nature of medical emergencies, emergency departments must see the most critical patients first, there could be a wait on any given day.RegistrationAfter you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a registration representative who will ask some questions and enter your information into the system. “The goal is to start your care as quickly as possible,” says McGlone. Having this information will enable the nurses to initiate your care in Triage.During registration, expect to share the following information:Your nameGenderDate of birthMailing addressName of primary care doctorReason for emergency department visitPhoto IDCare BeginsOnce you are registered your care begins.You’ll see a nurse who will review your:Chief complaint (reason for your visit to the emergency room)SymptomsVitals (blood pressure, pulse, and temperature)Acuity scale (from most life-threatening (1) to least life-threatening (5))Evaluation “Next, you are brought back into the emergency room and are seen by a medical provider in an appropriate space, which most of the time is a room, but it could be another treatment space within the emergency room,” states McGlone.Depending on the reason for your visit, you could be evaluated by an emergency medicine physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner, in addition to registered nurses and emergency room staff that are part of your care team. After your team talks to you and your family, they will develop an individualized plan of care.Individualized Care PlanYour plan of care could include monitoring, observation and other medical tests that will help the team to get more information about your health, such as:X-raysLabsCat ScanUltrasoundMRIEKG“Most of these diagnostic tests can be performed in the emergency room, but sometimes patients are transported to another location within the hospital or provided a prescription to have a diagnostic test completed on an outpatient basis and asked to follow up with their primary care doctors after leaving the emergency department,” explains McGlone.“Once all testing is completed, an emergency room medical provider determines whether each patient can be treated in the emergency room, transitioned to follow up with primary care outside of the hospital, or needs further evaluation and care within the hospital,” states McGlone. She reports that on average, 70 percent of patients go home from the emergency department with 30 percent admitted to the hospital.“Our goal at the emergency department is to stabilize and guide each person to the right plan of care moving forward,” says McGlone. Highly experienced staff do their best to attend to each patient and family’s every need within their ability by rounding in the emergency room and keeping each patient and family informed with progress, updates and care plans,” she adds.Follow-Up It’s important to know that the emergency department provides initial treatment and patients should have follow-up care that includes making an appointment to see their primary care doctor within a specific time frame or coordinating further specialist or diagnostic testing as appropriate.In addition, Florida Hospital helps patients that do not have a primary care doctor establish one to achieve continuity of care. The Florida Hospital Care Network offers patients throughout Central Florida quick access to some of the local area’s most experienced physicians and specialists in nearly every practice area. “Our approach is to help patients achieve their full health potential beyond our emergency department”.For some illnesses, Florida Hospital’s staff follow up with patients after returning home to see how they are feeling if they have followed up with their primary care doctor, and help them overcome any challenges in doing so,” notes McGlone.Emergency Room Preparation TipsNow that you have a better idea of what to expect at the emergency room, McGlone offers her emergency preparation tips:Don’t Hesitate“If you are questioning whether you need to go to an emergency room, you shouldn’t hesitate in going to be evaluated,” advises McGlone. It is always best to be safe and have trained medical professionals assess your health and provide guidance.PlanResearch your local emergency departments and have a plan for how you and your family will respond to different levels of medical emergencies in the future. Know when to call 9-1-1, when to go to the emergency room and when urgent care could be the best option for care.“For life-threatening medical emergencies, like any possible head or spinal cord injury, accident, heart attack or stroke, never delay in calling 9-1-1 immediately for the fastest response and medical attention,” advises McGlone.Throughout Central Florida, Florida Hospital’s Care Network includes 9 emergency room locations. Or for injuries or illnesses that don’t require emergency-level attention, Florida Hospital’s 31 Centra Care Urgent Care locations are available to help.Here are some things to include in your family’s medical emergency plan: Preferred emergency room and urgent care center names (this could include pediatric and adult emergency rooms for different members of your family)Emergency room address, driving directions and phone numberParking instructionsFamily call/contact listsItems to pack (phone charger, book, tablet, personal items, identification, insurance cards, comfort items, for example)Maintain Your Family Health Records and DocumentationKeeping a copy of your and your family’s medications/dosages, vaccinations, allergies, insurance card, personal identification and other important health records accessible in your wallet or purse could be extremely helpful to first responders and emergency medicine care teams during an emergency.“The quicker responders and care teams have this information, the faster they can facilitate the best possible care for you or a family member,” explains McGlone. She adds that during a time that will inherently be stressful, having this information on hand will help to reduce added pressure to gather it.The ER is a Place of Hope It’s important to know that the emergency department is staffed with very qualified doctors, nurses and medical professionals ready to help anyone that comes into its doors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no matter what.“The emergency department serves such an important role in our communities – it isn’t a “scary” place like what you might see on TV,” McGlone concludes.

Spanish judge to go to Baghdad to investigate cameraman’s death in 2003

first_img Receive email alerts to go further Organisation SpainEurope – Central Asia April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information September 15, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Spanish judge to go to Baghdad to investigate cameraman’s death in 2003 Reporters Without Borders hails a decision by Spain’s judicial oversight council, the CGPJ, to allow National Court judge Santiago Pedraz to go to Baghdad to examine the site where Spanish cameraman José Couso of the Telecinco channel was killed in 2003. Every possible light must be shone on the case so that justice can be done.Couso and Reuters reporter Taras Protsyuk, a Ukrainian, were killed when the Baghdad hotel where they and many other foreign journalists were staying was shelled by a US tank on 8 April 2003.This week’s decision comes five weeks after the National Court issued new international warrants on 29 July for the arrest of the three US soldiers implicated in their deaths: Sgt. Thomas Gibson, Capt. Philip Wolford and Lt. Col. Philip de Camp (http://en.rsf.org/irak-investigation-into-spanish-30-07-2010,38062.html).On 7 September, Reporters Without Borders released a report entitled “Iraq War: a heavy death toll for the media 2003-2010” (http://en.rsf.org/iraq-the-iraq-war-the-heaviest-death-07-09-2010,38294.html), in which it evaluates the seven years of military occupation by the US-led coalition from the viewpoint of its impact on media freedom. The report looks at all the journalists who were killed while just doing their job. Who were they? What news media did they work for? What were the circumstances of their deaths? Were they deliberately targeted? It pays tribute to all those reporters who were determined to keep reporting the news regardless of the dangers they were taking. SpainEurope – Central Asia ————————–30/07/2010 – Investigation into Spanish cameraman’s death revivedReporters Without Borders hails yesterday’s decision by Spain’s national court to reissue international warrants for the arrest of three US soldiers who are blamed for the 2003 death of Telecinco cameraman José Couso in Baghdad. Couso, a Spanish national, and Reuters reporter Taras Protsyuk, a Ukrainian, were killed when Baghdad’s Palestine Hotel was shelled by a US tank on 8 April 2003.The court issued the new warrants in response to a supreme court ruling at the start of July ordering it to reopen the case, which has been closed twice. The supreme court’s ruling was the result of an appeal by the Couso family.“We welcome the supreme court decision that relaunched the investigation into Couso’s death,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is high time the case emerged from the judicial labyrinth in which it has been lost for years. If Sgt. Thomas Gibson, Capt. Philip Wolford and Lt. Col. Philip de Camp were questioned in court, it could shed light on the unanswered questions surrounding this case.”The press freedom organisation added: “We urge the US authorities to respect the request being made by the Spanish court and the Couso family. After a seven-year wait, the family’s need to know the truth about his death is greater than ever.” RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News December 2, 2020 Find out more News Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso News RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive Follow the news on Spainlast_img read more

In furtherance of the Order passed on 31.08.2020, the Ministry of Railways and the Government of NCT of Delhi have not only initiated the process of eviction by identifying the jhuggis, a number of notices of demolition have also been issued at various slums in the national capital. Highlighting this development, Maken contends that the authorities, in doing so, have acted contrary to established law which necessitates the rehabilitation of the concerned slum dwellers prior to eviction or demolition. “…various policies of the Government of India and that of Government of NCT of Delhi providing for prior rehabilitation/ relocation of slums dwellers, survey of the affected population are neither being followed by the Respondent Railways nor have been brought to the notice of this Hon’ble Court.” In this light, it is prayed that the administrative authorities be directed to first relocate and rehabilitate the slum dwellers before evicting them and demolishing their jhuggis. Therefore, the petitioner has sought directions for authorities to follow the law laid down under the Delhi Slum & JJ Rehabilitation and Relocation Policy, 2015 as well the Protocol in place while implementing the Order of the Top Court. The 2-time MP has gone on to point out that the Order was passed in a matter (MC Mehta) where the affected slum dwellers were neither party to the case, nor were they represented in any capacity. Therefore, he adds, the Apex Court passed Orders without having considered their grievances or submissions at all. Emphasizing that close to 2.4 lakh people will be rendered homeless when this Order is given effect, by the Railway Ministry’s own admission, the petitioner pleads that doing so without hearing them would be “one of the gravest tragedy and non-observance of principles of Natural Justice.” Asserting that the Top Court heard the Government, which wanted slums to be demolished, and “completely ignored the affected/ vulnerable population” by denying them an opportunity to be heard, the petition urges that there “cannot be a departure from the rule of Audi Altrem Partem, especially when the Jhuggi dwellers have been living in the shanties for 30-40 years.” It has additionally been urged that evicting 2.4 lakh people without rehabilitation at a time when India is the second worst affected country in the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, would be highly risky. In these circumstances, forcing so many people to move around in search of shelter and livelihood is a dangerous proposition, claims the petitioner. The Supreme Court Bench headed by (Retd.) Justice Arun Mishra in its Order dated 31.08.2020 had directed that not only will there be no political or other interference regarding removal of encroachments in the specified area, it had also directed that no Court may grant a stay on the implementation of the same. Challenging this direction to not allow any Court to interfere and stay implementation of the Order, the petitioner argues that the same amounts to a grave obstruction in the Right to Access to Justice. “…restricting the Fundamental Right to Access to Justice is not only a grave violation of Article 14 and 21 as the Jhuggi dwellers cannot be treated as secondary citizens to deny them the remedies available under law”, states the petition. The Congress leader substantiates his challenge to the recent Order by referring to a Delhi High Court judgment from 2010, in which Ajay Maken himself was the petitioner, wherein the same issue regarding existence of jhuggis was decided. It is submitted that the judgment held that “jhuggis even along-side the Railways tracks can only be removed consequent to the rehabilitation/ relocation of the residents/ slum dwellers. Further, it also held that those living in the slums contribute to the social and economic life of a city by working as sanitation workers, garbage collectors, domestic help, rickshaw pullers, laborers and a wide range of service providers indispensable to a healthy urban life and hence they have the Right to the City or Right to Housing.”Click Here To Download Application[Read Application] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
